A Metagenomic Analysis Provides a Culture-Independent Pathogen Detection for Atopic Dermatitis

Abstract

PURPOSE Atopic dermatitis (AD) is an inflammatory skin disease, significantly affecting the quality of life. Using AD as a model system, we tested a successive identification of AD-associated microbes, followed by a culture-independent serum detection of the identified microbe. METHODS A total of 43 genomic DNA preparations from washing fluid of the… (More)
